This brief video only mentions the G17, G40, G80 as the commands used for a safe start line.  Other G codes recommended for a safe start line include:

Setting the mode for inch/milimeter G20/g21  or G94/G95 on some machines
Setting the mode for Absolute vw Incremental Programming G90/G91

This is a first look at the G and M codes that will be used to make the cribbage board.
